Sarfraz Ahmed Sets New Wicket-Keeping Record Against South Africa

After a failing performance with the bat, Sarfraz Ahmed, has upheld his reputation by setting a new wicket-keeping record during the final Test match against South Africa on Sunday.

Sarfraz Ahmed took 10 catches in the on-going Test match and surpassed Australia’s Adam Gilchrist and former Indian captain, MS Dhoni, to become the only wicket-keeper captain to reach this feat.

Additionally, the Pakistani skipper has also made another record; taking 5 catches in each innings of a Test match.

His 10 catches in a Test match is one better than the record previously shared by Kamran Akmal and Rashid Latif.

Here’s how the record-list currently stands:

Total Catches Wicket-Keeper Captain Opposition Year
10 Sarfraz Ahmed South Africa 2019
8 Alex Stewart South Africa 1998
8 Adam Gilchrist Sri Lanka 2004
8 MS Dhoni Australia 2014
